Festival of Leaves: A Caramel Ambush

cercidiphyllum-japonicum

Golden Days

Cercidiphyllum japonicum, known as the Katsura, is a species of flowering tree that not only looks good, but smells good in the autumn when the leaves are falling. Wafts of candyfloss or burnt toffee fill the air and the common name of Caramel Tree could not be more apt.
